[let me translate a wonderful work from brother syed hasni, this is in urdu and you can read it here]

abu hanifa said that i had never seen any one greater than ata bin abi rabah, and usually the ahadeeth i quote are wrong

{al kamil vol 8, page 237}

i (syed hasni) say: the sanad is sahih

let us see the scans


what do hanafis have to say?
